Had a couple of exactly the same messages from them. It seems like
one guy with no infrastructure of their own. Asked him a few
questions along the lines of why he was willing to pay more than the
cost of becoming a RIPE member for less than a /22 and he eventually
went away.

As others have said, anyone wanting to lease IPs is likely going to
do something that ruins the reputation of the IPs and relies on not
having their name on it at the registry level.
